May 22 (Bloomberg) -- The San Antonio Spurs won their second straight home game and took a two-games-to-none lead against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

Tony Parker scored 22 points for the Spurs, who held Thunder All-Stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook to 15 points apiece in San Antonio’s 112-77 win last night.

It was the NBA-record 111th postseason victory for the Spurs’ trio of Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. The Los Angeles Lakers’ Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Michael Cooper had 110 wins together in the 1980s.

Game 3 in the best-of-seven Western Conference series is set for May 25 at Oklahoma City. The winner of the series will face either the two-time defending champion Miami Heat or the Indiana Pacers in the NBA Finals.

The Heat and Pacers are tied 1-1 in the Eastern Conference finals, with Game 3 scheduled for May 24 in Miami.
